Really good point, Jackster! All sports, trades, scientific communities, jobs have their own esoteric language or mumbo jumbo if you prefer. Just a few days ago a guy was talking about "fade" and Silver pointed out that the accepted term for the technique is "drift". I don't think a search of "fly casting, fade" would do anything but return the searcher to his own post- and now this one.

Until you learn the terms and what they really mean, it is hard to learn anything. Even on this board I'm sometimes stymied by anacronyms and abbreviations. That's why I try to type the whole name out the first time followed by the acronym in parentheses.
